Only the official TASC Senior Secondary External Assessment Medical Certificate will be accepted as it includes all information required by TASC.
The medical consultation must be on the day of your exam, or not more than seven days before the exam. If the date of the consultation is after the date of the exam it will not be accepted.
|Do not attend your exam if you have cold or flu-like symptoms, or have been instructed to quarantine or isolate (including waiting for your COVID-19 test result).
If you have cold or flu-like symptoms, arrange a COVID-19 test by calling the Public Health Hotline on 1800 671 738, or by making an appointment with your own GP.
Even if you are not symptomatic, do not attend your exam if you have had a COVID-19 test and are in isolation awaiting your COVID-19 test result.
Public Health Hotline COVID-19 test:
GP arranged COVID-19 test:
You need to attend any exams you have scheduled that are on the day after the dates of illness/incapacity written by your GP (which allows time to receive notification of the COVID-19 test result and your symptoms to have cleared). Usually a TASC Medical Certificate can be for a maximum seven-day period but this will be waived if the GP has indicated a period of illness/incapacity beyond the seven-day period on the certificate.
Derived exam ratings will be applied to determine your results, if it is accepted that you are sick or experience an emergency and can’t attend your exam (in whole or in part).
For more information about derived exam ratings, see the information sheet on Student Results using Derived Exam Ratings.
